‘Addicted to Death’ was recorded the first time in 2015 at a drug rehab center by John alone using only the very limited amount of hardware and software available there. It was released online under the moniker Nastrand in 2016 as part of a three track EP. The lyrics are deeply personal to John and re-recording it in Devourer’s studio with Fredrik on vocals to release as a single felt right. The original recording along with more information about it can be found at SoundCloud.
A video for the song ‘Throne of Agony’ from our latest album was released earlier today. It is the result of a unique collaboration with a Dutch collective of creators called Makers Monday, led by Amsterdam-based filmmaker Rick van de Dood. We are very pleased with the video and wish to thank everyone involved for their time and effort!

Our newest album was awarded 13 points out of 15 by Legacy and 8 out of 10 by Metalegion Magazine in their latest issues and we’re also interviewed and included on their sampler CD:s. The interview in Legacy became a bit too long to be included in its entirety in the printed magazine so they posted Fredrik’s answers online instead.
Across the Empty Plains can be ordered on CD now. Send us a message either here or to our Facebook page to get your copy now. The price is 100 SEK or 12 USD excluding shipping. All proceeds go towards funding the promotion of Devourer in some way.
Across the Empty Plains is now available on the following digital music stores: Deezer, TIDAL, Amazon Music, Napster, 7digital, Spotify, Google Play and Anghami. It is supposed to be available from eMusic, Shazam, iTunes and 24-7 Entertainment too but I couldn’t find it there either because I couldn’t search the store because I have no account there or it hasn’t listed the album yet. You can still download the album from our discography for free.
It’s been fifteen years since we started Devourer and the album we release now is a great way to celebrate the past fifteen years. It also gives you an idea of where we’re heading musically and where we’ve been the last couple of years. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating it.
Today we released a song from our new album “Across the Empty Plains” on YouTube. In one week from now we will release it on Bandcamp free for streaming and downloading in high quality and in two weeks on June 1st it will also be released on most of the major digital music distribution services.
The album was entirely written and produced by Devourer and the cover art is the work of Juanjo Castellano.
On the leap day of the Gregorian calendar, or actually the day before but I wrote the post today, a teaser from the new album was released on this website and on SoundCloud. The backbone of the album is in place and the vocal tracking is progressing nicely. Johan V and I added some more guitar work and we’re working on other embellishments true to the ways of Devourer as well. This will without a doubt be our best work to date.
After discussing the new albums lyrical theme and our vision for the cover with Juanjo Castellano for a while we’re pleased to announce him as our cover artist. He’s a brilliant artist with an impressive portfolio so we are certain that his artistic contribution to the album will make it look as good as it sounds! A title for the album is yet to be decided but Insania and Across the Empty Plains are the titles of the two songs that inspired the cover art concept the most.
